Cupcake Cabernet Sauvignon NV
Fresh apples, lime, yeast, tea and dried leaves on a nose that smells a bit sweet. Very high acid help to cut through the noticeable sweetness on the palate. This is fruit driven and full of lemony and apply fruit, tastes much like fizzy Chardonnay. A bit coarse and rough and tumble but full of fruit and zippy acids. 86ptsAdd winemaker's notes

Light apple and pear aromas. Fresh acidity, lemon and peach flavors. Tart and refreshing.
Green apple and light honey flavors, some yeast and a bit of biscuit. Crisp and refreshing.
Nose of wet hay, grass, a bit yeasty, with roasted corn. Mint and parsley on the rich mouth, with apple and a nice crisp finish.
Gooseberries on the nose with some almond and lime flavors. Large bubbles. Crisp and tart throughout. Well priced, but simple.
Grapefruit and peaches on the nose. Gentle buscuit flavors, some yeast and a soft sweet roundness to it. Not half bad!
Pear and apricot on the Nose. Smooth finish for a sparkling wine, with lots of vanilla and honey. Nice refreshing summer wine.
Bright flavor, not too sweet.
External Reviews for Cupcake Cabernet Sauvignon
This wine was a collaborative effort between Adam Richardson and winemaker Paul Epsitalie at Lacheteau winery in the Loire Valley. "This wine starts off with hints of brioche and white flowers on the nose. The palate is smooth and creamy with hints of pears, almonds and just a touch of caramel sweetness. It has a long dry finish that's quite refreshing. Pair it with classics like butter poached scallops, angel hair pasta in a cream sauce, or a mushroom risotto." - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
